Lauren Conrad becomes Cruella de Vil for Halloween

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


On The Dark Side

Tapping into the wonderful resources of Disney once again, Lauren Conrad today revealed her Halloween costume for 2017, but it’s not the so sweet and gooey characters Lauren’s been associated with this time around, Lauren taps onto the evil side, becoming Cruella de Vil from “101 Dalmations” and “102 Dalmations”.

Lauren’s primary reason in taking on Cruella de Vil, and thankfully not other Disney villians like evil step folks, sea witches, or wicked queens, is because Lauren’s a new mom now, with less time on her hands, so Lauren needed a costume that was less time consuming to make.

However, the tradeoff in going with the villainous Cruella de Vil pays off because Lauren knows that her 7 and a half month old son, Liam James Tell, would make for the most adorable dalmation out in the land, and because this is Liam’s first Halloween ever.

Mom Needs To Stay Strong For The Little Ones

Being a new mom, nursing a newborn, and making a Halloween costume on top of the 101 things a mom in general must do is hard work, and can drain a mom’s energy if not properly nourished, so team LC today rely on Kelly LeVeque to help Lauren Goes Ireland on reducing mental depletion and constant hunger.

Kelly’s recommendations to the You & Lu blogger are getting more fats in to curb hunger, slow down digestion, and releasing the satiety hormone, foods like salmon, avocaco, grass-fed beef, and bison are good for fats, for almonds, cucumbers, spinach, and chocolate have their own benefits to help a new mom stay on top.

Lauren Conrad wore her very own label to Veuve Clicquot event



What Did You Wear To Polo Today?

Lauren Conrad today gave identification to the beautiful jumpsuit she wore to the 8th Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic this weekend, tapping into the familar resources that are her own namesake creations, which call for a upscale option in this case.

Lauren’s label of choice from her home grown farm was Paper Crown, because Veuve Clicquot requires getting all dolled up since it’s an upscale event held in Pacific Palisades, California at the Will Roger’s State Historic Park for what’s been 7 years now for Lauren, one year after the event started in 2010.

Lauren’s outfit is the Bari Jumpsuit in French Dandelion, coming from the Paper Crown spring 2018 collection, which will be available in early 2018, Paper Crown CEO, Maura McManus, wore the Dauro Dress in Daisy Organza, and Paper Crown friends, Leslie and Jeannie, wore the upcoming spring line as well, with Leslie in the Delia Vest and Jerelyn Shorts, and Jeannie in the Pearl Culottes.

Bread In The Orange

Lauren Conrad’s kitchen contributor, Claire Thomas, of The Kitchy Kitchen went into the recipe box again today, showing us her way to make vintage orange bread, which brings out amazing ideas for enjoyment.

Making orange bread begins with using orange juice, orange rinds, and sugar, along with using the usual bread ingredients of egg, flour, and yeast, then there’s the blood orange glaze made of powdered sugar, blood orange juice, and zest from an actual blood orange, which gives very strong flavor already.

Lauren Conrad picks best designer handbags



Who Do You Wanna Carry Around?

Today, Lauren Conrad has a Tuesday Ten that fashionistas, and designer obsessed buyers alike will find very fruitful in their world, designer handbags that are worth one’s money to buy, ranging from the most affordable, the most expensive, and the most stylish.

Lauren’s first set of handpicked designer handbags include Prada Saffiano Leather Tote, Givenchy Antigona Medium Textured-Leather Tote, Mansur Gavriel Leather Bucket Bag, Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote, and Chanel Classic Quilted Handbag, so far it’s the tall and wide options features appear to be Lauren’s favorite in the first five here.

Next up, Lauren continues on by featuring the more detailed and fancier designer handbag options, starting with Chloé Faye Medium Leather & Suede Shoulder Bag, Céline Luggage Phantom Tote, Gucci Soho Leather Cross-Body Bag, Saint Laurent Monogram Chain Wallet, and Stella McCartney Falabella Mini Fold-Over Tote, all having their own features and needs.

Rings Without Blood & Guts

There’s more to buying a ring than size, clarity, color, and cut, it all comes down to whether the ring went through fair trade and ethical practices before arriving at a downtown jeweler’s row, team Lauren Conrad today dispenses a guide to ethical ring shopping.

As James Allen helps to make this guide a lot easier to maintain one’s halo, buying ethical jewelry means that it’s conflict free, meaning that there was no human abuse, child labor, violence, or environmental degradation, it also helps to buy fair trade, which are the most ethical sources, and CanadaMark Diamonds via James Allen are a good place to start.

Let’s Go Polo

Nothing Like The First Time

There’s that moment where we all have a first time in our lives, but this one is very special because Lauren Conrad’s baby Liam James Tell just had his first trip to a pumpkin patch on Thursday looking adorable as ever.

There Liam is snuggled up in a onesie all in white, resembling a lamb, while Lauren holds him up high in her arms, and a little Instagram description saying “This little lamb had their first trip to the pumpkin patch today”, simply expressing how much Lauren loves her baby boy.

Lauren did not look too bad herself, Lauren got festive for the occasion by wearing a short sleeve slightly burnt orange t-shirt that’s slightly on the heavy side, with black skinny jeans ripped at the knee, and a pair of big and thick black sunglasses as the pumpkin patch barn was filled with sunlight.

Home Profit

As Lauren was taking baby Liam out to the pumpkin patch, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday that Lauren sold her home in Brentwood, California for $4.525 Million, which is $30,000 above the asking price, and $900,000 more than what Lauren paid for.

Lauren’s home had 6 bedrooms 5 bathrooms, an office, a very large yard, a breakfast nook with a spectacular kitchen that has tile all around the counters, cabinets, and appliances, a big living room to accompany the kitchen where all the rooms are splashed in white, and out of the 6 bedrooms, one bedroom is used as a den.

UBM realigning New York fashion trade shows

Changing To Ensure Longer Life

UBM Fashion announced last Thursday afternoon that it’s making big changes with all their New York City trade shows, combining women and men’s shows into one, and expanding Coterie’s presence, responding to an evolving retail landscape, and to better serve global brands and retailers.

After UBM holds women and men’s shows separately one last time this coming January, both genders will hold their first combined show on July 22 to July 24, 2018, because most designers celebrate not only women as a majority of their brand, but celebrate a growing men’s market as well, creating unity and inspiration in what now has become a duel-gender marketplace.

Coterie for a long time now has positioned itself to be the mainstay of the UBM trade show market, holding shows in both February and December, Coterie will now get a third trade show appearance as part of UBM’s new pre-collections show that will make its debut on June 10 to June 12, where Fame, Moda, AccessoriesTheShow, and POOLTRADESHOW will join in this new added UBM Fashion presentation.

New York’s Javits Center will continue to be the home to all of UBM’s new and existing trade shows, as well as MAGIC in February and August continuing to have their shows in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Though, the new year starts on January 1 for everybody around the world, UBM’s new 2018 calendar year will start in February, where all these changes will officially take place, given reason why they’ll be separate shows for women and men in January 2018.
